Beyoncé: 'I Know That I'm Powerful'
Star sizzles in sexy spread for GQ magazine & talks about her career...
Destiny's Child songs, it was a big thing to be that young and taking control.
"And the label at the time didn't know that we were going to be that successful, so they gave us all control. And I got used to it.
"It is my goal in life to be that example. And I think it will, hopefully, trickle down, and more artists will see that. Because it only makes sense. It's only fair."
The star - who also graces the cover of the publication wearing a cropped t-shirt and knickers - added: "I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."
Bey also hit the headlines this week after it was reported that she is to perform at US president Barack Obama's second inauguration ahead of her stint on stage at the Super Bowl on 4th February.
